For me, body-surfing waves are a must to avoid going a little crazy. However, this beach deserves the marks because it is so joyfully undeveloped! Where do you find a world-class beach without massive resorts and tons of hawkers??? From the Station 1 area it's about a 10 min tricycle (tuk-tuk) ride with a standard PHP150 fare. Bring shoes because... More

I know everyone goes to Boracay for the White Beach and White Beach is perfect! But for the real beach lover, Puka Shell Beach is paradise! The beach is secluded by posers who just want to take selfies in bikinis. It is unpolluted by crowds of hawkers, restaurants, or beach beds. What is left is a virginal experience! There are... More

There are a number of ways to get here. You can walk for an hour or more, take the tricycle or rent a sailboat. If you have a few dollars to burn, go rent a sailboat at 3 in the afternoon from the locals walking around the beach. First off, they would offer it for P1,500 - P2,000 ($33 -... More

We hired a scooter to travel from White Beach here, when we arrived at around 10am we were the only ones there - very romantic and lots of little souvenir shops too.

The restaurant on the beach is very good, the locals are very kind, the white sand with all those beautiful palms and the crystalclear blue water together truly amazed us.

Great place to relax and pick up some sea shells. Waves are a little more rough on this beach than White Beach but it was fun and beautiful all the same. There are some people who will sell you jewelry and things here as well, it can be overwhelming but it is a lot of fun. Highly recommend this on... More

A shot trip from White beach is Puka beach, a very quite and beautiful beach. Very few people there and a nice escape from the busy white beach.

This beach (for me) is better than white beach. So quiet, not packed with thousand of tourists and has beautiful sunset. You can swim without getting your butt bumped with other people and you can take pictures without only beach as the backround ! amazing! Just take the tricycle and go! this beach is pretty.

Sand is coarse compare to White Beach with lots and lots of shells. However, it is less crowded and you can enjoy the peacefulness and view. Kids had great fun building sand castles and playing frisbee there. Really worth the 150peso tricycles trip (one way).

We love to gather shells at the seashore wherever we travel, however be warned! You cannot collect or buy shells in the Philippines unless they are from an authorized vendor with a government approved receipt. They will stop you at the airport and confiscate the shells.
